Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, visited his girlfriend’s grave “to face his demons,” a source told Radar Online. Gordon, who is blamed for Bobbi Kristina's death by the Browns and the Houstons, was barred from seeing the 22-year-old following the January incident that left her in a coma.
Photos of his visit to Bobbi Kristina’s grave at the Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey, on Aug. 17, have been published by Radar Online. The photos show Gordon collapsing into tears as he pays respect to his late girlfriend.
“Nick went there to face his demons," a source told Radar Online. "He needed closure. He knew he had to make the journey to the grave to say goodbye -- particularly after he was banned for six months from visiting her in the hospital or paying his final respects to her in the hospice.
"He said he begged her family to attend her funeral in Atlanta, but was banned from there too,” the source reportedly added.
An eyewitness told Radar Online that “the cemetery was eerily empty” on the day of his visit.
"Nick came silently out of the car clutching two bouquets of short-stemmed roses, one pink and the other red, as well as several pictures of himself with Krissi,” the eyewitness reportedly said. "He appeared to stand frozen at her grave for a few moments.”
"In an emotional collapse, he then broke down and stretched out his body on the length of the grave," the eyewitness added. "He was obviously haunted by the enormity of being in Bobbi Kristina's presence."
"Nick is broke. He can't afford to defend himself. There was a deal for that money to go to his defense fund," a source told Page Six.
According to the report, Gordon’s "generous friends" paid for his flight to New Jersey, where both Bobbi Kristina and her late mother, Whitney Houston, are buried side by side.
Bedelia Hargrove, Bobbi Kristina’s legal conservator, filed an amended lawsuit this month against Gordon, alleging that he drugged Bobbi Kristina with a “toxic cocktail” and then drowned her in a bathtub. The 25-year-old is also accused of abusing Bobbi Kristina and stealing her money.
Bobbi Kristina died on July 26 at the age of 22 after being in an unresponsive state for nearly six months. She was hospitalized and put in a medically induced coma after she was found facedown in a bathtub at her Atlanta home on Jan. 31.
